Honestly, for online playing with a GoG version, i expect the classic problem of "CD key already in use". If i remember well, some lads on Discord explained me to change a key value in the Windows registry, and it worked well. But Windows is the old world, i'm on Linux now so we'll see what it gives...

I installed TeamSpeak 64 bits for Linux this morning. Clean install, clean running, no problems so far. :gj:

Next step is to fix my broken headset. :sylvester:

:tux: Welcome to the Linux Side!!! :tux:

What's the difference between installing wine from the Mint repositories and the Wine repository?

Btw:

> wine regedit

If you use a wine prefix like it's mentioned earlier in this thread, you probably need to add that too.
In the H&D2 registry field add some characters at the end of the cd-key.

Thanks for the infos, Damni and Doc. :gj:

@Damni : Well, i'm a noob on Linux, i don't know the differences between repositories, all that i can say is that i've try first from the LinuxMint repository via the GUI and it was a fail i don't know why. I add that i didn't try to insist much with this method, i rather directly go with the terminal method using this WineHQ web page .

In hindsight, i think the problem with the GUI method was a non activated 32 bits architecture but it's just an assumption. As soon as i was successful with the terminal method i didn't dig this point any further.

About that, i add that, for the moment, i feel better with the terminal method, it makes me think something about a good old DOS console, i.e. one line, one command. At least, with this method, it seems better to learn and understand what you got by typing one command after another. GUI is fine but, sometimes, it's something as "just click and pray for everything goes well until the end"...

I 100% agree with you. I find the terminal way of doing things much more straightforward.
